MEMES is a duo that formed in Glasgow, UK, in Spring 2019. Debut single ‘Blah Blah Blah’ earned the band a Steve Lamacq live session on BBC 6 Music, regular radio airplay on BBC and Amazing Radio (from Steve Lamacq, Vic Galloway, Tom Robinson, Jim Gellatly, Billy Sloan, Nicola Meighan, and Charlie Ashcroft), and multiple blog write-ups and reviews. The band has landed notable early gigs at The Shacklewell Arms, Old Blue Last and Nambucca in London as well as a string of gigs in Glasgow, including an appearance at Tenement Trail 2019 and an invite to play at the Stag & Dagger warm-up show in November - ahead of a full festival appearance in 2020. The band's latest single 'J.O.B.S.' was released 29th Nov 2019 on Fierce Panda Records “MEMES create aggressive yet catchy post-punk songs with lyrics that really pack a punch.” - Scotland on Sunday ONE NINE Hitting out in July 2019 with their rampaging, guitar-driven debut Difficult Days, Glasgow-based two-piece One Nine have burst onto the Scottish music scene with uplifting choruses and fat pop beats. Selling out their first show and gaining 'Hot New Bands' playlist on Spotify, One Nine are Neil Mulholland and Kirstin Lynn, a duo quickly gaining a reputation for their exhilarating live shows and addictive melodies. Euphoric follow-up single, 'Lost Satellites' has featured on BBC Introducing and is fast becoming a live favourite, as the band grow an impressive string of gigs, including playing at The Scottish Alternative Music Awards and showcasing at Tenement Trail to a happily crammed venue. With a headline King Tut's show to start the new year, One Nine crash into 2020, making waves that show no signs of calming. 'A rousing piece of melodic guitar pop which belies the fact that this band only has two members' - The Scotsman Billy Got Waves Having known each other for twenty eight years, Scottish Hip Hop artists Billy Got Waves and Joell came together four years ago as part of 131 Northside. A hip hop collective based in Edinburgh for the purpose of creating music together and supporting one another. Having featured on each others projects respectively, 2019 saw them collaborate on a project “Wish You Well” which gained great support from across the country. The project boasts futuristic trap based productions and catchy melodies with mix engineering – handled by YUMYUM records Sün Jún and art direction from WoozieWorld. Having truly set themselves as ones to watch within Scottish music, Billy and Joell are ready to expand their careers and take their music to wider audiences. "Over an eclectic instrumental rooted in trap, the pair glide over the beat, sprinkling melody and catchy lyrics throughout." - Trench
